Who IS THE BIGDUMBHICK?
That's me, Jeff Wall. I'm the Bigdumbhick. I'm am acoustic singer/songwriter/storyteller living in Winston-Salem, NC.
"But why Bigdumbhick?"
Because if you do a Google search on Jeff Wall, odds are you will find a Canadian. Either the esteemed photographer Jeff Wall, or the equally esteemed British Columbia based Singer/Songwriter Jeff Wall. Not the bigass, hillbilly, Singer/Songwriter/Storyteller Jeff Wall from North Carolina. But if you do a search for Bigdumbhick, you will find me here, because there is only one Bigdumbhick.
"Ok, But why Bigdumbhick?"
I'm big. My wife says I'm dumb, My kids think I'm a hick. I'm 6'7" and somewhere around 340lbs. I take up a lot of space. I have a Southern accent. When you are this big, and you talk like this, and look like this, people automatically make assumptions, and i like to have fun with that.
"What kind of music do you play?"
I'm a bigass hillbilly, so I guess you could say that I play bigass hillbilly music. I am primarily a solo acoustic performer playing my own original tunes as well as the occasional cover. I can sometimes be seen and heard accompanied by some phenomenal bass player, or some other equally amazing stunt picker, but most of the time it is just me. My background is in Bluegrass and Classic Country, so when I play covers - Country, Folk, Bluegrass, Punk, Rock, and even Reggae tunes, they are going to have a Bluegrass/Country tinge to them, if not a complete reworking into a Hillbilly tune.
Some of my songs are geared toward an adult audience - However, have no fear. Contrary to appearances, I am not a complete idiot - I only play songs that are appropriate to the audience I am playing them for.
